EMC-Dell outshines VMware earnings news

 Focus on Docker analysis: The biggest tech deal ever, Dell buying storage giant EMC today, has a container and virtualization angle. EMC owns 80% of VMware, whose virtualization customer base is widely coveted by container firms. The plan is for EMC shareholders to receive shares of a tracking stock in VMware, but the complex ownership of VMware required creative financing. The EMC-Dell deal spooked VMware investors as its stock dropped almost 11% mid-morning.
